Agility enters feeder shipping

Melbourne: Logistics provider Agility has entered the feeder shipping market in Australia. Agility Logistics has formed a joint venture with Transworld Marine Express to offer a container shipping service between Tasmania and Melbourne. The joint venture will deploy a 516 teu vessel Tassie Bridge on the three times a week service planned to start in August. Agility said a second vessel maybe added later in the year depending on customer demand. "This is a major step for Agility in Australia to meet growing demand from our customers for a reliable scheduled service across the Bass Strait connecting Melbourne and Bell Bay, Tasmania," said Mark Turnball, ceo for Australasia and North Asia for Agility.
